Over the last few days we’ve talked a lot about love, and the music…
I made an album about ‘relationship love’, but every type of love has a relation, that’s why it’s called love. It’s a journey through it, past relationships, past lives. You have to have bad to have good. You can’t really use words to describe a feeling and I feel like that’s the task for me making love songs.
Describe a feeling using words? How do you do that? You can’t! If you feel something, you can try to put it in words, but you can’t describe it, ‘cause it’s a feeling. But I try through my storytelling, but I’m not telling stories.
Followed by love is always passion, where in the process does your passion lie most?
In order to have passion you’ve gotta have love! A process is the whole piece and there are so many parts; skeleton, flesh, spirit. Like writing, I just write, I don’t think about what other people think. Sleeping on a beat, waking up and listening to it, there’s something about that fresh ear, the clarity, the pause of the subconscious. It’s like someone died, the moment of silence. Then you go back to it and that’s how I know if it’s good or not. I love writing, I love recording, I love being on stage expressing the things that I wrote. I love it all.
I love your answer, you don’t need to choose! What’s something that brings you most joy then?
What do you want from life, is there an imprint you want to leave behind?
I could be selfish and immediate and just say for my son, but honestly I don’t wanna leave shit behind. Once you compare yourself, you lose! I just want to live mine to the fullest. Be a noted example of light.
What do you want to teach your son?
I don’t really know about me teaching him things. I feel the thought of that is arrogant. Yes, he can learn from me, but teaching him things? I had so many people try to teach me things my whole life who didn’t know shit.
Hodgy has been telling me about this book on esoteric wisdom he’s been digesting and how it’s helping him be a better father.
I think we’re so lucky that we are able to live this way, our truths if you will. For me I feel like this is the least amount of lies I’ve ever told myself. Would you say it’s the same for you?
Imagine being this way and not being available to it? I don’t know when, but one day I just woke up and realised I was blessed. I just know the shit that I used to say from 17 to 20, I paid for all that shit. I’m hella sensitive, I could fuck up a whole room by just not saying shit. I can light a whole room up without even trying to be the light!
